5 ways we’re helping HMOs reduce the cost of quality healthcare for enrollees


Healthcare costs have been on the rise for many years, putting significant strain on health maintenance organizations (HMOs) and making it increasingly challenging to provide quality healthcare for enrollees. In this context, we are playing a vital role in helping HMOs reduce the cost of providing quality healthcare. We offer a range of solutions that help HMOs to streamline administrative processes, improve data management, and promote preventative care, among other things. According to a recent study, implementing telemedicine solutions can reduce the cost of care delivery by up to 30% and increase access to quality healthcare for enrollees by nearly 40%. Below are some benefits for HMOs

1.    Reduction in Overhead Cost of Providing Quality healthcare for enrollees

The cost of providing quality healthcare is a significant concern for HMOs, as operational and overhead costs can quickly add up. HealthConnect24x7 offers solutions that help HMOs to reduce these costs and allocate resources more effectively. We also help HMOs to optimize their staffing levels, reducing labor costs while ensuring that patient care is not compromised. For instance, our state-of-the-art customer care center ensures that HMOs no longer need to hire staff to handle patient’s care consultation, saving cost. This approach helps HMOs to avoid overstaffing, reducing labor costs while ensuring that patients receive the care they need. By reducing operational and overhead costs, HMOs can improve their bottom line and invest in other critical areas of their organization, such as research and development or expanding their services.

2.    Improved Preventative Healthcare

Ever heard the phrase “prevention is better than cure?” This is particularly true for Healthcare as preventative care is always less expensive than curative care. It is crucial in ensuring that patients remain healthy and avoid costly medical interventions. We understand the importance of preventative care and support HMOs in developing and implementing programs that promote it. With our easy-use App, which is available on the Google play store and IOS, as well as easy access to our toll-free line, HMO enrollees can access hassle-free preventive healthcare. These could be in the form of regular check-ups, screenings, and counseling, all of which can help patients stay healthy and avoid costly hospitalizations or emergency room visits. With our support, HMOs and their enrollees can take a proactive approach to healthcare, promoting wellness and preventing illness before it occurs.

3.    Leveraging telemedicine for quality healthcare access at reduced cost

Telemedicine has revolutionized the healthcare industry, providing patients with access to medical care from the comfort of their own homes. At HealthConnect24x7, we understand how to make telemedicine work on an operational level in a way most telemedicine outfits can’t. With our telemedicine solution, HMOs can reduce the need for in-person visits, thus lowering costs associated with traditional health care delivery. Telemedicine has been shown to significantly reduce the cost of healthcare, with studies showing that telemedicine visits cost up to 80% less than in-person visits. By leveraging our telemedicine services, HMOs can improve access to care for their patients while lowering costs and improving the patient experience. Our telemedicine services are available via a dedicated toll-free line or via the mobile app on your preferred Playstore. The HMO subscription plans are customizable, and designed to meet the unique needs of each HMO and their patients, enabling them to provide the best possible care in a cost-effective manner.

4.    Improved medication management and adherence in Providing Quality Healthcare for Enrollees

Medication management and adherence can significantly challenge many enrollees, especially those with chronic conditions. Poor medication management can result in enrollees experiencing adverse health outcomes, leading to increased healthcare costs. Our telemedicine platform offers enrollees access to medication management services. Enrollees can receive reminders to take their medication and assistance with medication management, reducing the likelihood of adverse health outcomes and associated healthcare costs. By providing medication reminders, refill notifications, and other management and adherence assistance, we help HMO enrollees stay on top of their medication regimen, reducing the risk of complications and hospitalizations. HMOs can ensure that their patients receive the right medication, at the right time, and at the right dosage.

5.    Improved Health Data Management

Effective health data management is critical to reducing healthcare costs. With HealthConnect 247’s telemedicine platform, HMOs can access enrollees’ health data, enabling them to provide personalized healthcare services tailored to each enrollee’s unique needs. In addition, the platform offers enrollees access to their health records, enabling them to take a more active role in managing their health. This results in improved health outcomes, reduced healthcare costs, and increased enrollee satisfaction.


Healthcare is an essential service that impacts the quality of life of individuals and communities. The cost of healthcare is a significant barrier that makes it difficult for HMOs to provide quality healthcare without huge financial implications. The significance of our role in reducing cost for HMOs is far-reaching. By partnering with HMOs we are helping to redefine Nigeria’s healthcare architecture, ensuring that low healthcare coverage due to availability and cost would soon be a thing of the past.
